My Students

I am overjoyed to be a first-year teacher in the same school district I grew up in. Many of my role models and superheroes growing up, were my incredible teachers and now I am lucky enough to have them as co-workers. My hope is to have a similar impact on my students. I will be teaching sixth-grade math and science.

My students are amazing!

Our school is in the middle of an agricultural metropolis. Many of my students come from farming families. We are located next to a reservation. We welcome a wide range of Native American and Hispanic students. Roughly fifty percent of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch, yet they don't let hardships stand in their way. We celebrate the diversity of each individual student in our school. I am excited to work with each and every student to help them reach their full potential.

My Project

The books that I am asking for are some of the most sought after in our entire school.

Infecting my students with the desire to read is way easier said than done.

I believe these books are just what I need to ignite the bookworm inside each of my students.

Many of my students want to read these books, but find themselves number 5, 6, or even 15 on the waitlist. If you could support this project it could make the difference for me and my students.

I promise to take good care of the books, and my kids do too!
